Senior Software Engineer // Full-Stack Developer

I am a senior software engineer and full-stack developer.

In addition to my interest in software, I am the founder and owner of The Hook Look, LLC, a hobbyist shop showcasing and selling things I make.

In my spare time, you can find me running, reading books, playing games, or dabbling in the arts.

I am an avid reader. I enjoy most genres, but you'll find me most frequently in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi section most frequently. Fun Fact: My library is organized by the Dewey Decimal System.

You can find me traveling to conferences and events, networking and sharing my experiences as a speaker. I am also a volunteer and organizer for several local events.

My partner and I are a "dynamic duo." He works on some awesome tech projects; check out his awesome work! We also enjoy woodworking and building things together.

I am an oxford comma advocate.
